Chimera Renamed to Camino

Monday March 3rd, 2003

The Mozilla-based Chimera browser for Mac OS X has been renamed to Camino™. This change was made for legal reasons involving the existence of an older, unrelated browser for UNIX-based systems called Chimera. Camino 0.7 will be released shortly.

Was the term Mozilla ever questioned. Never heard of that. When Netscvape was founded they used Mosaic and that was challenged and they changed to Netscape. I read somewhere that the Mozilla name actually came from that Mosaic vs Netscape conflict. Being Mozilla slang form Mosaic Killer (Mos Killer became Moz killa and eventually Mozilla). The dino came after that because it sounded similar to Godzilla).
